The Queen

The big bad, and the ruler of them all. The Queen is the single most important member of any hive, and the rest of your children's lives depend on you to stay alive. If you die, the xenomorphs you command will lose all direction and hope, as well as being unable to heal until a drone or Shrike steps up to become a Queen. The decisions you make can make or break a hive as early as round start, so it's important you strive to achieve.

Chances are, you didn't want to be a Queen, and you're afraid of failure. Know that as long as you have practical knowledge of how xenomorphs play in the first place, then this guide will be able to get you out of the tight spot you're in. Even if you don't want the job, the less you delay, the greater the chance you get live longer, because as long as you're putting out larva, there will always be drones to replace you.

If the Queen and Shrike die, then the hive will be orphaned and collapse within 2 minutes. If there is no Queen or Shrike in that time period, there will be a marine major.

Big Mommy Slaps Marines' Cheeks

The job you've been handed is no easy feat. You play as a tactical role that xenomorphs look to when making decisions on engaging against marines. Fundamentally, you support xenomorphs by:

  • opening opportunities to push with Screech
  • rallying the hive for a push
  • making corrosion of reinforced walls to allow for xenomorph maneuverability
  • promoting a select few xenomorphs to hive leadership
  • Emitting Pheromones for your sisters
  • melting CAS flares and OB beacons
  • healing nearby xenomorphs
  • building resin walls to reduce marines' firing lanes and increase CQC chance
  • looking for flanks to hurt marines
  • spitting at marines with acid

Your Queen Zoom allows you to see further than xenos normally can so that you can scout out openings in marines' defense.

If a xeno is not following orders, or evolved against your set specifics, you can De-evolve A Xeno. If they continue to disobey orders, you may want to take it up with the Admins.

Your Call Burrowed ability can be used to call upon ghosts to become a burrowed larva that will spawn at your feet.

Through overwatch, you can assign hive leaders to carry pheromones, give xenomorphs plasma, heal xenomorphs, and be able to watch through their eyes as well as send them private orders. Early into the round, it is best to make a drone a leader and emit recovery pheromones for optimal hive building, and then change it to any of your more combative classes and emit warding or recovery. Frenzy may seem tempting, but its effects more often than not lead to xenos being killed instead of killing.

It is of utmost importance that you survive, no matter what. A rule of thumb is to always flee at half health, and stop fighting entirely when lower. The longer you live, the longer the hive lives on. Make sure to order your xenos to do the same, as a dead xeno is never an ancient xeno.

Maturity Statistics and Evolution Paths

Maturity increases stats as follows.

  • Slash is the melee damage when the xenomorph is in harm intent and slashing marine. In the code, it's melee_damage.
  • Melee, bullet, laser, energy, bomb, bio, rad, fire, and acid are soft armor values, not hard armor, which means that they reduce damage by a percentage rather than a flat value.

Tips and Tricks

  • Your Corrosive Acid can help quickly melt flares, walls, and guns. In addition, you can tear open walls that have had a hole put into them from acid with your claws (Ctrl-click on a hole to tear the wall open).
  • Xenos directly benefit from your orders. Your voice is the one that turns a group of rag tag fighters into an organized group, so don't hesitate to give out orders.
  • Don't rush to fight. You are much more useful supporting your allies while alive than not, so much so you might find yourself never having to screech once.
  • LOCK THE SHUTTLE. If you don't lock the shuttle, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye. To lock the shuttle, approach the pilot's room, and click on the middle computer/controls. You don't have to launch it, just interacting with it is enough.
  • Remember that you are fighting a war alongside your children, make sure to always make note of what xenos you have at your disposal and coordinate them accordingly, every xeno has a niche that they fill, and when using these specialist in the right way can turn the tide of battle in your favor.
